Patients and families facing a brain tumour diagnosis have resources at their fingertips thanks to the hard work and dedication of volunteers from across Canada. The newest and most-up-to-date Brain Tumour Handbooks – Adult and Pediatric versions are now available.
The handbooks are written for patients but are tools for anyone affected by a brain tumour diagnosis, including loved ones and family members.
This book is available in Adult and Pediatric versions and both are available in English and French. Handbooks are available in both pdf form and as a hard copy. You can request either or both versions, free of charge, by completing the contact form or calling us at 1-800-265-5106.
This resource (the handbook with the orange cover, available in English or French) aims to diminish the misconception that non-malignant or "benign" brain tumours do not alter the lives of those affected. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a non-malignant brain tumour, this resource is for you.
Handbooks have been compiled with the support, guidance, and expertise of medical professionals and volunteers from across Canada.
" The materials sent to us (by Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada) were awesome. Helped explain everything we had been wondering about."

As we celebrate National Volunteer Week (April 23-29, 2017) we thank all of our 700+ volunteers. Without each contribution, we would not be able to offer the programs, services and events that we do. Each person volunteers in a different way and for different reasons. For Liz, giving back to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada as a volunteer was a “no brainer”.
